Sixteen-year-old Mizuki Kanda thinks about the loss of her grandfather, her friends and seniors at her high school--as she paints a field of colorful flowers on walls surrounding a rubble disposal site in Onagawa, Miyagi Prefecture.

"The theme is the repose of the victims' souls," Kanda said.

The first-year student at Miyagino High School started painting on her 15-meter wide, 3-meter high "canvas" in Onagawa on March 3. She is painting it with the victims of last year's Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami in mind.
